I completely disagree with you since waterproofing was one of my top wanted features - but your post cracked me up. I'm not picturing one of those commercials with someone flipping their wet hair back lounging under a waterfall reading. I'm kind of surprised none of the e-reader companies have done something like this already as an ad. They like to show enough of the paradise water features.

I believe the first H2O had a Carta screen and an external card slot.

That list is also at 9, not 10 since reading left handed is not a new feature in any of the current Kobo line.

Some droolworthy content in the attachment for people gasping for more space .
Too bad it didnt accept 256gb ones i have, it would have been a 512gb ereader .
Lack of sd card is whats been putting me off of libra, which otherwise would be an ideal reader for my needs.
In all fairness lack of space could be compensated by using koreader and running calibre or opds local server, but way more convenient when i have most of my comic book collection readily available everywhere i take the reader. For books only, yes, i suppose even 8gb is too much.

I'm supposed to be drooling over the fact that you wasted eighty bucks on SD cards you don't really need?

M-x snark-mode

My comic and manga library is about 60GB. I don't recall ever needing to have the whole thing with me. Heck, I don't have even 1/3 of that on my 32GB Aura One.

Cmon now, we all know youre green with envy cause mine is bigger than yours(storage wise). And collection is also around 400-500GB , so bigger than yours twice uptil now, dont make me unzip :P .
Joking aside, ofcourse its an overkill and its more of a want than need, plus the bragging rights . But it has its plus sides, considering the very slow write speeds of the onboard sd card readers of the original h20, saves the hustle of needing to ever connect to pc and wait(more time left for love ) . After the wow effect wears out, i think i will settle with 32GB internall for large book library and 128GB in the external slot for comic books, as its pretty fast taking it out and copying content with a card reader(more than 10 times faster when compared to onboard card reader as 128gb and up have fastest write speeds 90MB/s). That, and koreader not needing to index anything after adding content is a match made in heaven.
As for the $80 tag you assigned to the venture... I suppose you havent checked sd card prices lately, large micro sd cards are pretty cheap nowadays. One of the best cards - Samsung Evo Plus 128GB can be had for around $19 a piece, 64GB ones around $12 and 32gb already hard to justify purchase as its around $8-9.
So how much is convenience really worth?Up to each individual to decide for himself.

Having the newest and shiniest toy is more important for me personally than added storage space. It would be nice to have both, of course, but if I must choose between a new model and an older model with a SD-card slot, the new model will always win.

Drool no, a bit jealous maybe haha. 128Gb is a lot of space.
Personally I don't care much for the waterproofing (of course you can't have an open micro sd slot if you want waterproofing).
First thing - the 32Gb Aura one is all sold out everywhere I look - I'm guessing the larger storage is what everyone needs (or at least thinks they will need - of course I agree) ie Best buy and indigo. The only thing available is libre the forma and of course the clara. Now, I wouldn't pay $300 bucks for an e reader. About $100 is what I would spend. Even the $200 for the libre and forma is steep. Back when I got the kobo aura's I believe it was for $99.
Now I can find them on ebay and no where else but there seems to be loads of them in China - so what are they doing with them? (loading spy software and selling them back?) anyways that's about the only place I can get my hands on an micro sd card slotted Kobo. I don't have a kobo with a light but luckily I got my family members one so they can read in the dark.
Regarding the micro sd cards, I can simply take one sd card and no matter who has an e reader with them I can pop it in and my books are there. With these new readers (of course it's not a deal breaker - well it is with no micro sd card slot - but..) I have to load my books on them rather than just popping in a micro sd card.
What happened to the new kobo mini2? Did I miss that? If it had a light, and a micro sd card slot! Bamm! I'd buy that in a second (been looking for a kobo that can easily fit in my pocket.

Of course you can. This slightly awkward blog post even has a video showing how.

One of the the biggest questions and concerns people have with the new Kobo H2O e-reader is how do you load in an SD Card. This reader has a waterproof flap at the very bottom which protects the Micro SD and Micro USB ports from the water and dust. Today, we show you exactly what you need to do to insert an SD card properly.

Here's an idea ... piggy back a micro sd card slot from the existing one.

A hack that modifies existing kobo's to have a micro sd card slot. Haven't looked into it but couldn't you piggy back solder another micro sd onto the existing one?

This would help! I think you can even go Bigger for storage.
